    Take out Searchlights Easily

    White Acropolis

    When playing as sonic (not on snowboard) to destroy a searchlight easily go up to the tower and keep pressing A - if done right you should bounce to the top and smash the searchlight note: They will repair after a while.

    Tap Hovering

    When playing as E-123 Omega

    Omega's hover sucks, but you can hover for a good few minutes at a time by repeatedly tapping "A". When tap hovering, you are free to move around without losing any substantial height at all, great for dusty desert zone!

    How to Beat Egg-Cerrebrus

    This guy is a giant dog that eggman controls. He is not that hard to defeat. While he runs around the level you chase after him and when he stops you jump and grind up his tail and jump to the intennae on his head. When you do this you have control of him and run him into on of the statues. Do this 3 or 4 times. But the longer the battle lasts the more resistant he gets when you try to run him into the wall.

    How to Beat Silver

    Silver is a silver version of shadow. He is probably one of the hardest bosses in the game. In order to beat him you have to have the move that allows you to slide while running. What you do is run around the level 3 or 4 times avoiding the boxes he throws at you. Then while running hold X and run at silver, but don't get to close or he will use is psychic powers to throw you across the level. When you think your close enough let go of X and sonic will slide hurting silver. Repeat this 5 or 6 times and he will be through in no time.

    Iblis is this giant worm that you have to defeat when you are transported to the future. The level you are stuck on these little blocks of land and need to somehow attract Iblis in order for him to come near. He will do this dance and shoot flaming rocks at you. You can dodge this by eithre jumping and staying in the air as long as possible. Or you can jump to another block of land. You will need to keep collecting rings all around you so you never die. Next he will jump out of the lava at you, if you dont move then the block and you will both be killed. After that Iblis will tremmor the whole room and more blocks of land will come falling leading a path to these crystal balls. You will need to get to the balls and Hit A+A to do a midair dash to light it. He will then come and stare at the light leaving you the oppurtunity to to a dash at the green diamond on his forehead. Repeat this 4 times and he will be dead in no time.
